On Friday night, we escaped the chill hanging over NYFW this season with a party at the Club Room at the SoHo Grand Hotel, to celebrate one of our favorite photographers, Jimmy Fontaine. Jimmy is currently the head of photography at Atlantic Records and has an impressive portfolio melding fashion and music, which was on display on the walls of the Club Room and bar and included photos of everyone from model Lindsay Wixon to actor Daniel Radcliffe to musicians like Interpol and 2 Chainz.
Guests, including bloggers, editors and industry insiders, sipped mixed drinks from Deep Eddy vodka and Peroni beers while snapping photos with the hosts. Even Hugh Jackman was spotted in the crowd, checking out the photos while going (mostly) incognito in a Rangers hat! We also celebrated the launch of our in-house candle line, highlighting our first three locations in Manhattan—West Village, Madison Avenue and TriBeCa! Each candle scent is inspired by the vibe of the neighborhood, beautifully packaged in a sleek black box. You can check them out online here, or stop by one of our stores to find your favorite.
